Guilt-free healthy banana bread recipe

posted in: Health

My friend Jess and I were experimenting in the kitchen the other day and came up with this modern take on a traditional recipe.

This delicious banana bread is hearty and wholesome with just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy sweet cravings.

You can enjoy this nutritious modern take on a classic recipe, without feeling guilty or suffering unwanted digestive issues afterward.

It also happens to be vegan, gluten free and paleo so it can be enjoyed by most 🙂

Quick, easy and tastes delicious, it is perfect on a cold winter’s day served with

with a hot beverage of your choice (in my case a chai latte).

For those who want extra sweetness drizzle with honey or homemade apple/ginger sauce.
